The 2016 Stakeholder Dialogue features Ari Weinzweig, co-founder and CEO of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses.
Zingerman’s is a family of entrepreneurial food-related businesses in the Ann Arbor, Mich., area with a staff of 650 and annual sales of $50 million. Weinzweig started his venture with a delicatessen that has developed into a community of 12 related businesses by building on his employees’ passions and creative energies, using unique leadership and management strategies and building key relationships with the Ann Arbor community.
Weinzweig has written more than 12 books on his leadership and work philosophy and has traveled across the country to talk about his learning in business. His most recent book, Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading, Part 3: A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to Managing Ourselves: Leading the Life You Want to Lead, the final in a series of three regarding his perspective on the 12 Natural Laws of Business, will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
